[language] slang

Jake and I watched an episode of "City Homicide" the other day, which is an Australian drama series about a homicide floor of a metropolitan police headquarters.

At one point, one of the detectives said, "You can bet your fine cotton socks" that we'll catch the killer.

I am intrigued and would like more information on this slang. We compared it to things like "you can bet your bottom dollar" and "you can bet your mama's life," which are phrases we can better break down, but not so much this.
